Camp out at Abbey Wood

The life of the camper and caravanner isn't a particularly glamorous one, but it is certainly a joy to be able to move a mini-home around with you and pitch up wherever you want. The places you can visit with your tent or caravan aren't even limited - as one might expect - to rural locations, and when last week your author received an invitation to visit the Caravan Club's site at Abbey Wood in Royal Greenwich Borough, he was intrigued to see what he might find.

The site is open to Caravan Club members and ordinary people, and features 210 pitches, with 50 reserved for tents and the rest for caravans and motor homes, with the price starting from a relatively-inexpensive £13.30, and whilst most Londoners would probably prefer the warmth of their own bed, facilities such as showers and wifi, and nearby trains into London make it a decent bet for Kent and Sussex dwellers those visiting from the Continent. It was pleasantly quiet, with mature trees and well kept lawns and birds singing in the trees, and though it almost certainly gets a bit less peaceful in high season, its location less than 30 minutes from London Bridge is surely a rarity.
